I definitely don’t think it’s normal. Maybe she just wants an excuse to have another huge party?

I wouldn’t mind a big vow renewal after a small intimate wedding but that is obviously not the case. To me, thats weird and I wouldn’t attend even if I were in town…

I would decline the invite, personally.  Yes – I think it’s way too soon.  And “an I’m not a bachelorette party”?!?!  Are you kidding me?

Did they have a small wedding the first go around?  Maybe this is the ‘what we wish we did’ round?

Reminds me of the SYTTD episode I saw this week.  The couple came in to the shop to find her a dress for her one year vow renewal.  I looked at J and asked him why the hell would anyone want to renew their vows after one year?  I don’t understand it myself nor do I think it’s a good idea.  To each their own though.

A small vow renewal, sure.  Some people do it every year on their anniversary.  My husband and I have started a tradition of doing it since we were legally married (eloped) one year and had a big religious ceremony and reception with everyone a year later.  This year we plan to say our vows again, but just the two of us on a trip we are planning for our anniversary.

But another big blowout with a dress and all the fixings?  That seems really odd to me.

@Miss Tattoo: Defintely no gifts! Maybe a sarcastic card Wink If it were me, I’d go just for the free food and open bar. I love me some open bar.

I don’t think it’s very typical to do this, but to each her own!  I wouldn’t miss out on an opportunity to attend a big party if it was local.  I probably would not bring a gift though, except maybe something small like a framed pic I had taken of them during their wedding.

I think she’s got the post-wedding blues and wants another reason to throw a party. Still, it’s a teensy bit strange. Can’t she plan a huge halloween bash? Or a summer soiree?

If I did a vow renewal I would not be inviting guests. Thats weird. No I would not give you a gift, especially if I JUST bought you one!

I would get it more for the people who had a giant wedding and want to do something personal- just the two of them or just family.  Is she planning on renewing her vows every year?  Yikes.

It’s a little odd, but I don’t think it’s right to judge her.
